And now for a little song….

All things bright & beautiful
All Bicycles great & small
All Cyclists wise or wonderful
The Tea Ride welcomes you all.

Each little turn of pedal,
Each little squeal of brakes,
Just a tiny bit of bravery
Is really all it takes.

The rich man in his castle,
The poor man at his gate,
We wave to them as we pass them by
And cycle past their estate.

The towering Ivinghoe Beacon,
Whistle Brook running by,
The sunset and the morning,
That brightens up the sky.

The cold wind in the winter,
The pleasant summer sun,
The Tea Shops & the Cafes
We will visit every one!

The Rose & Crown, Ivinghoe,
Is where we meet to play,
Be ready to leave at 10am,
On every Saturday.

We all have smiles to greet you,
And lips that we might tell,
How great the Vinghoe Velos are,
And the Tea Ride is just swell!

It has been claimed that Cecil Francis Alexander wrote her “All things Bright and Beautiful” whilst staying at the Govilon manor house and inspired by her surroundings.  The Tea Ride reckons she couldn’t read her map and was actually somewhere near Vinghoe……..
Countryside to cycle through.  Whatever your bike.
